Arrowhead via E Ridge
approx. 3,280 feet
6 hours 5 minutes
3 hours 26 minutes ascending from Highway 2 to summit of Arrowhead Mountain
1 hour 56 minutes descending from summit of Arrowhead Mountain to Highway 2
The first mile followed the railroad tracks. I kept worrying that I wouldn't hear the train as it approached from behind.
Heading up the east ridge of Arrowhead. The views started here.
On the summit looking east down the Yakima Valley.
Avalanche chutes! The SW shoulder of Rock Mountain.
Bulls Tooth and Sasha Peak behind Doughgob Mountain
The rolling NE arms of Jim Hill Mountain.
Leaving the summit.
Descending the forested slope between the ridge and railroad.
The train tracks seemed much longer on the way back.
